Tap the brakes!! It’s too soon to read Snow Predictions For Massachusetts! It’s not even autumn yet!

Thanks to the Old Farmers Almanac, as they share their annual snow predictions for the 2023-2204 Winter season.

Four Seasons

I always wonder that someday, will I retire outside of New England? Will we move to the sunshine state of Florida? I have friends in Florida that wonder how we have stayed in the Northeast for so long. While four seasons of sun sounds interesting, I still can’t get my arms around a Christmas with palm trees. Ok, I’m hearing Andy Williams in December on the radio, and there are dolphins jumping out of the ocean on the way to the market. I’m not wired for that. Or how about Myrtle Beach. Wait, that means I’ll have to learn how to golf. No thanks. December to me means Shelby Scott and Bruce Schwoegler on Channel 4 helping me prepare for the inevitable.

Will We Stay Put?

I love seeing the first snow. Nearby, we found this Christmas tree farm, where each year, I cut it down myself. Pine needles to sweep up, sap on my hands, centering it in the tree stand, doesn’t make sense if it’s 85 and sunny outside. Am I weird? Probably, but that’s me. By the way, when it all ends, and it does, what follows is a glorious Spring. Change, is good.

Old Farmers Almanac

Speaking of change, what can we expect THIS Winter when it comes to snow predictions?

Old Farmers Almanac is out with their annual regional snow predictions addition. Here’s their opening snow song:

Snowfall will be above normal across most snow-prone areas (except for the Pacific Northwest). Only snowy New England and the Atlantic Corridor will enjoy winter temperatures which are milder than what’s typical for their regions.

What? Milder temperatures across the New England? Well that will be a welcome change for our wallet!

So now that we have faced facts, let’s jingle all the way to grandma’s, and see the 2023-2024 Snow Predictions For Massachusetts!

  • Northeast

    This region covers:

    Caribou, Burlington, Augusta, Concord, and Albany.

    Yippie! Precipitation and snowfall will be above normal. The MOST SNOW will occur in mid-to late November, mid-December and early to mid-January. Temps, above normal.

  • Atlantic Corridor

    Snow shoveling!

    They consider our neck of the woods the Atlantic Corridor.

    It includes:

    Boston, Providence, Hartford, New York, Philadelphia, Atlantic City, Washington DC, Baltimore and Richmond.

    Sorry! No white Christmas expected.

    Yes! Winter precipitation and snowfall will be above normal (2 to 3 inches above monthly averages). The snowiest periods will occur at the end of December, late January, and mid-February. 

    But it’s weird, temps will be above normal. Making the snow heavier to shovel, I would guess.

  • Appalachians

    Happy Family!

    Elmira, Scranton, Harrisburg, Frederick, Roanoke, Asheville.

    Expect above-normal precipitation and snowfall. The snowiest spells will occur in late December, mid- to late January, and early to mid-February. You can expect a white Christmas in the higher terrain of West Virginia in the north, but not elsewhere in the region. Temps, again LOWER than normal? 

  • South East Region

    Raleigh, Columbia, Atlanta, Savannah:

    Down there, they can expect a wet winter with above-normal precipitation and snowfall for the Southeast (most of North Carolina, South Carolina, and Georgia).

    Those lucky SOB’s will have a mild winter with above-normal temperatures overall.
